Note: I am resending this since the original didn't get posted.

See WTP Status Telecons [1] for more information.


Amy Wu, Arthur Ryman, Chris Brealey, Chuck Bridgham, Craig Salter, David Williams, Der-Ping Chou, Jeffrey Liu, Jill Maclem, John Lanuti, Keith Chong, Larry Dunnell, Lawrence Mandel, Naci Dai, Nitin Dahyabhai, Paul Meijer, Phil Avery, Raghu Srinivasan, Sheila Sholars, Susan Yeshin, Ted Bashor, Tim deBoer, Tim Wagner


1. Approval of Minutes - Arthur Ryman

Are there any corrections to last week's minutes? [1]

No corrections. Minutes approved.


2. RC1 Status/Vote - Tim Wagner

All component leads should be prepared to vote on RC1 release. Recall the exit criteria for RC1which are described in the Endgame Rampdown Plan [1]. These are:

Prior to initial RC:
  • All P1 bugs addressed, all P2 bugs reviewed for fix need prior to RC cut
July 13:
  • RC1 produced
  • Only non-destabilizing bug fixes, P3 and above. User impact and cosmetic fixes only will be approved; no API changes
  • All checkins must have Bugzilla entry
  • Component lead must code review and approve all fixes (enter into Bugzilla record and checkin notes)

At present we have 1 P1 bug unresolved [2]:
103065 blo P1 PC gilberta@xxxxxxxxxx kelvinhc@xxxxxxxxxx NEW WSExplorer does not show any input field in the form view

Chris - I vote No. I'd like to release a fix for 102364 in addition to 103065.
Tim D - I'd like to see Chris's fix released.
Craig - I vote Go.
Chuck - I vote No. I'd like to release a fix for 103807 to correct a JUnit failure.
David - I vote No. We have an  NPE in creating a JSP, 103867. Also 103662 is a deadlock, but I don't have a fix in hand. We may have a fix by 6pm. for NPE and be able to finish the deadlock assessment but we may have to defer that to RC2.
Der-Ping - I vote No. We have 2 fixes to release: 103278, 101720
Tim W - I suggest that we release the 5 fixes that are available.
David - I like suggestion of respinnning now and verifying the JUnits. Then possibly add other 2 other fixes for an overnight build.
Naci - I agree we should respin now with the available fixes.

Arthur - Summary we will realease the 5 availbale fixes now and rebuild the RC1 candidate. Release these fixes by 4:00PM EDT. David will confirm that fixes have been released vis pserver then start the new build. If David has fixes available later, we'll rebuild again.

4. RC2 Plan/Bug Status - Jeffrey Liu

We need to stabilize the code, which means we need to limit changes to high priority problems only. Recall the RC2 plan:

July 22:
  • RC2 produced
  • P1/2 only can be addressed
  • All checkins must have Bugzilla entry
  • Component lead and PMC member must code review and approve
  • Changes communicated to wtp-dev mailing list

1. Review of P1/P2 bugs (by owner)

Chris - OK. I am fixing 1 P2 in RC1 and am raising the priority of a few more for RC2.
Craig - OK.
David - 4 of 5 are OK (the 2.1 editor conflict is more difficult)
Tim - 1 +  4 others. OK for 4 of 5.
Craig for Ella - This is a performance issue, but not serious. I'll investigate.
Jeff - OK.
Chuck for Michael - OK, will also move up some others.
Nitin - Both are under investigation and may be large fixes.
Chris for Rupam - This will go into RC1
Chuck for Vijay -  Need to investigate.

2. Review of deferred serious bugs -

Jeff - We have 45 that have no justification. Can we handle these by next meeting?
Der-Ping (with 13)  - This query includes some new bugs. These can be resolved in RC2.
Lawrence (with 5) - OK.
Phil (with 5) - OK
Naci for Gerkam (with 4). I'll investgiate since Gorkem is on vacation.

3. If time permits
        resolved bugs backlog
        inbox bugs backlog

Timed out.
